Earlier that night, the unidentified man described only as "Josh from New Orleans" was at another bar called The Pit, said Brodie McCrory, who works front desk at the Downtown Hotel.

Seriously?  Josh from New Orleans probably has one of the better drinking stories out there.

There's a $500 fine for swallowing the toe, which Lee said is meant as a "deterrent." On Saturday, an unidentified man entered the bar and approached Lee's station with a shot of whisky.

"This guy popped it in his mouth . . . takes $500 out of his pocket and slams it on the table and starts walking away.

"I said, 'Where's the toe?' and he said, 'I swallowed it' . . . I was shocked."

They should have a "I swallowed the toe" t-shirt that you're awarded for swallowing the thing. I can't imagine what that would be like the next day, with all the bone and the nail.

Of course, if the bar were really clever, they'd have an insurance policy that guarantees them a new human toe.

Actually, it's true. I submitted the headline about 15 minutes before this went public on the main page. And thus, this would have already been long since approved. If you haven't submitted anything before, my son, then perhaps you do not realize that they usually approve it for total Farkers hours before it goes public.

A friend of Josh's is opening a bar where you can order a drink with a severed human toe which has been through somebody's gastrointestinal tract in it.

squibbits: How to get $500 for a severed toe.


Well you could always ask that ICP guy from "the gathering" who cut off his nipples for a whole lot less than $500... Not sure who'd want to drink a severed nipple and you'd have to rename the bar tho :(

Sounds like lack toes intolerance to me.

"an American patron, who had drunk the cocktail before, decided to ingest it this time"

G'damn Yanks and their compulsive-eating disorders!

Meh, it was just his mutated sixth toe he got from standing in toxic waste and had removed in Vault city.

Read article, went "Oh gods, someone ate the bones, I mean, toe with the infamous Sourtoe Cocktail"...

And yes, they DO actually have a way in which to replenish toes if necessary.  This is NOT the first toe that's been lost (supposedly no less than FIFTEEN toes have gone missing from 1973 onward), there are four other toes on reserve, and (as another Farker noted) people DO donate their toes to the bar--either upon amputation, or upon death.   (Reportedly, the fine has also been raised...to C$2500 to discourage this in future.  This may actually pay for an amputation if in Canada and without traveler's insurance...)

And of note (because someone mentioned doing something similar with, erm, the human equivalent of lamb fries) there is apparently some serious talk of making a "Sourbone Cocktail" with the preserved testes and baculum (penis-bone) of a black bear until a new toe is officially procured from the Toe Reserve.
